Poof – IF

As soon as I read the prompt for the week, I burst into laughter! This is such a common word in my household. My daughter (Kayla) and I both have very big hair.

When she was little (of course, she’s grown now, she’s 13!) I use to tell Kayla that her hair was “poofy’ because the fairies adored her so much they would tap their magic wand, and “poof” their love made her hair jump for joy!

Even now on extremely humid days, her hair just poofs; and she looks like a sun flower. Kayla and her girlfriends have coined the phrase “poof hair“.

She begged me not to draw her poofy hair and put it on the Internet, but of course, I ignored her, but I did do a younger version of her (she was 4 in this pose), and her poof hair. This is after bath time one morning when the fairies had “poofed” her during the night!

Introducing: “POOF hair”, one of the greatest loves of my life!

Here’s to finding those moments in the past, that just breaks you out in laughter and smiles.
Happy weekend from “Poof” Head Indigene!

  1. Absolutely beautiful portrait. She shows a lot of beautiful spirit. Since you have poof hair too, you can show her how to find its strenghts and show it to advantage.

  5. What a lovely illustration! I love the feeling of movement. I just about burnt my hair to a crisp perming it when I was a teenager—don’t we all want “poof hair”?!

    Thanks also for your kind comments on my illustration :)

  17. I had the same response, we use the word “poof” a lot at our house as well, it’s what we’re supposed to do with our troubles, “poof” them away. Love Kayla’s smile and her poofy hair, I’m sure it’s the envy of all her friends.
